Culture: From High to Hip

The Quartier Latin, most famous for La Sorbonne University, is widely regarded as the center of student activity in Paris. While the selection of shopping might be better in nearby Les Halles, the presence of cultural variety and bookstores makes this experience more varied and unique. Enjoy the sights while exploring the many small variety shops including the best bookstores in Paris such as Diptyque, La Tuile à Loup, Librairie le Bail-Weissert, and, for the non-French speakers, Shakespeare and Company. The Quartier Latin also has a large mix of culture from the street vendors, to street performers break-dancing in the middle of traffic. If you are hoping to hang with the locals, the Latin Quarter is certainly worth checking out on your Paris trip plan.
